Senator Ted Cruz grilled FBI director Christopher Wray over a “nonsensical” FBI training document that claims ‘patriotic symbols are extremist.

According to the document, the “extremist” imagery includes Gadsden Flag, the Liberty Tree, and the Betsy Ross Flag.

Wray claims he has no knowledge of the document, which cites symbols, phrases, images, events, and individuals used by agents to identify potential “Militia Violent Extremists,” as per Project Veritas.

Cruz said the revelations highlight how the FBI is “weaponized and politicized” against everyday Americans, targeting them as “Anti-Government or Anti-Authority Violent Extremists.”

“I will self-report right now that every day in the Senate I wear my boots that have the Gonzalez battle flag on the back of em,” Cruz said, adding, “What are y’all doing? This makes no sense.”

Cruz continued:

“Included on this list is the Betsy Ross flag. Now that’s fairly remarkable that the Betsy Ross flag, in the FBI’s indication, is indicative of militia violent extremism – because among other people who have been publicly alongside the Betsy Ross flag; we have President Barack Obama, who was sworn in directly underneath two Betsy Ross flags.”

Cruz notes that the Gadsden Flag is a symbol currently used on Virginia license plates.

The Senator told Wray, “You don’t include things like Antifa, you don’t include things like Black Lives Matter.”

“Instead, you identify patriotic Americans as a suspect.”

During the hearing, Cruz forced Wray to admit that the Detroit FBI Special Agent who oversaw the “absolute debacle” of the Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping entrapment scheme is now in charge of the Washington, D.C. Office overseeing the Jan 6 investigation.

GOP Senator Josh Hawley also questioned Wray, citing a whistleblower report detailing that the Biden Administration had evacuated hundreds of people on the Pentagon’s “watch list” from Afghanistan, including known suspected terrorists, and resettled them in the U.S.

The whistleblower said the White House ordered data to be deleted and corners to be cut while not vetting refugees properly.

Wray stated that the FBI is trying to investigate but failed to give information as to the status of any of the cases.

“I can’t sit here right now and say we know where all are located at any given time,” Wray stated.

“We know that hundreds of people potentially connected to terrorism are loose in this country” owing to these actions, Hawley said.

Wray also warned that “Al-Qaeda maintains its desire to both conduct and inspire large-scale, spectacular attacks.”
